FortÃ© Lubricants continues to ramp up interest in its Good Garage Scheme network.
The company has launched a campaign to encourage motorists to keep their engine oil levels topped up.
It is “strongly advising” that drivers who need to top up their oil every 1000 miles visit a member of the Good Garage Scheme.
The â€˜Check your Oilâ€™ campaign uses figures quoted by Channel 5â€™s Fifth Gear.
According to the TV programme:
- One in 5 vehicles is low on oil
- 25 cars a day are ruined due to lack of oil
- The RAC attended 9000 calls last year due to lack of oil
Phil Dugmore, the Good Garage Schemeâ€™s technical manager, said: â€œThe essence of the campaign is to ensure motorists are doing all they can to protect their vehiclesâ€™ engines by checking the oil once a week.â€
